Frequently Asked Questions
What color is the flower girl’s dress?
One of the stronger rules of thumb with flower girls’ dresses is that she must compliment the bride. This means that flower girl dresses should be a slight variation of the bride’s gown. The result is usually white or cream or ivory off-white.
Who should pay for the flower girl dress?
Normally the wedding party and guests pay for their own clothes, meaning the flower girl’s dress is up to the parents. However, in cases where the bride and groom can afford more gifts than tradition calls for, purchasing the ring bearer and flower girls’ outfits are completely acceptable.
Are 10 years old too old for a flower girl?
If you are following tradition, girls nearing their teens (ancient Greeks lived shorter and married younger) are too close to their wedding years to be considered children, so this isn’t advised. However, modern sensibility allows us to be a lot more flexible. If she is old enough to follow instructions and young enough to fall within your personal definition of what the flower girl represents, you are encouraged to do as you, please.
